Don't Forget

Pretty, Hot, And Tempting... Phat Bob will make the feet stomp.

The Mapex Phat Bob Snare Drum is built to be played hard and loud. The Black Panther snare is armed with an extra thick 12mm maple shell, rounded bearing edges, and a deep snare bed for a thick, fat sound.

The Mapex snare drum boasts handbuilt and hand-finished Black Panther drum shells and completely redesigned hardware. From the fresh, sculpted lug design to the smart new badge, Mapex Black Panther snare drums are now more beautiful than ever.

Mapex Black Panther hardware
The cylinder-drive strainer uses a self-lubricating bearing to ensure smooth operation while providing minute control of the snare tension. Mapex's piston-style throw-off is incredibly smooth and requires minimal effort to operate, and the adjustment dial employs micro-lock technology that provides a tactile click as it's turned, allowing precise control.

Mapex Sonic Saver Hoop
The Sonic Saver Hoop bridges the gap between flanged hoops and die cast hoops. A unique shaping process creates a profile that reduces wear and tear to both sticks and hands while dramatically enhancing the response and feel of every rimshot.
The Sonic Saver is significantly lighter than a conventional die cast hoop, so it won't choke the shell's vibration. The result is a more natural percussive sound with much greater resonance.
This Mapex Black Panther snare drum features stainless steel snare wires for crisp, lively action, and premium Remo drum heads, including a coated Ambassador batter head.

Best Snare I have ever owned

By Dustin Schmidt

from U.S.A.

Comments about Mapex Black Panther Phat Bob Snare Drum:

I would recommend this snare to anybody who loves the warm sound of wood. Drum is named Phat Bob for a reason it has a truly Phat sound with a wide tuning range. Try it you will like it.
Top of the line as far as I'm concerned
Great snare and a great price.

    Comments about Mapex Black Panther Phat Bob Snare Drum:

    The Mapex Black Panther Phat Bob snare is a truly amazing instrument. In addition to the description on this page, I would add that the shell is quite thick. The bearing edges are rounded off as well. These features undoubtedly contribute to the fat sound of the snare. Despite its 7" depth, the snare is phenomenally sensitive and seems to like any range of tuning. I also love the Mapex Sonic Saver hoops. With the thickness of the shell and the Sonic Saver Hoops, the cross stick sound is beautiful. For the music I play (mostly rock and blues), this snare is perfect!
